Now that it’s summer, I am able to sport my favorite accessory on a day-to-day basis: baseball caps!
In fact, two of my featured Fashionista/os last semester sported this trend:
Hat courtesy of Emory University and sneakers by Ralph Lauren courtesy of Macy’s.
However…there is a problem…
…Lorde, is there a problem…

Looks like the baseball cap has some competition now that wide-brimmed hats are the must-have accessory during festival season.
Baseball hats are ideal for dressing down your look, while–on the other hand (or, should I say head?)–wide-brimmed hats are perfect for protecting against the sun’s harmful rays during a music festival. So, I’ve summed up the perfect places to wear (and not to wear) each hat:
Wear: Around campus, shopping,jogging, parties, rap-off (yo), baseball game
Don’t Wear: Funeral (kinda rude, eh?), football game (no, the Braves aren’t and never were a football team)
Wear: Music festivals, gardening, shopping, concerts, Lorde-
look-a-like contest, around campus
Don’t Wear: New York during rush hour (seriously, have you seen how
packed it gets?), mosh pits (but then, why would you be in one?)
So, which will you be sporting this season?
